Today's wine is a spectacularly opulent yet elegant tribute to the viticultural gifts of the Uco Valley. It is sourced entirely from the Finca (Vineyard) Piedra Infinita in Paraje Altamira, La Consulta, which sits at an altitude of 3600 feet and has soil comprised of alluvial deposits, gravel and calcium carbonate. Sebastián Zuccardi eschews oak barrels in favor of concrete vats for fermentation and aging so the beautiful interplay between grape and terroir takes center stage in the finished wine.
96 points, James Suckling:
"This is a unique wine for Mendoza with a cool-fruit and serious slate character. Undertones of dried herbs and bark. Full body, integrated fruit, and tannins. Wet earth, too. Reminds me of the reds in Spain's Galicia, but so new in Argentina. Drink now but better in 2020." (4/5/18)
94 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The aromatic expression of the 2017 Concreto Malbec is completely different from the 2016. This is a lot more open, floral and gentle, with a more polished and sleek palate with more integrated acidity. A wine of tremendous energy, it was kept in concrete all its life (hence the name) until it was bottled. 25,000 bottles were filled in December 2018, just before the next harvest." (6/29/18)
93 points & #10 Top 100 Wines of 2018, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Calm and pure blackberry and cassis aromas feed into an intense palate with freshness and rubbery tannins. While not loud, this goes heavy on the gas and features edgy dark-berry flavors. A rock-solid finish confirms the structure on this cement-fermented-and-aged Malbec from Paraje Altamira in the Uco Valley. Drink through 2025." (11/1/18)
